We’re nearly at the end of Buy Nothing New Month.
Did you know that at the start, Fairfax ran a poll in their Business section about Buy Nothing New Month? They asked what people thought of Buy Nothing New Month. Over 10,000 people responded. 82% said it was a good thing, they’d give it a go.
We hope you’ve enjoyed yourselves and we’d love to hear any ideas you’ve had for next year on how the pledging community can get more out of the experience. Your thoughts and input are valuable. Tell us your highs and lows, we’d love to hear ’em.
Locally in Australia, Buy Nothing New Month has been picked up by everyone from Kerri-Anne, to ABC’s 7.30 Report and George Negus.
Further afield, we’ve had pledgers from all around the world. It is flipping marvelous that across the board, so many are saying ‘stop the train I want to get off’ and are taking a ride down a quiet leafy street without one single ‘$2 Shop’ on it!
If you haven’t worked out how you’re going to turn your month-long effort into a competition entry – get your second hand skates on! Entries close November 7th.
